This is a photo snap taken during one of this month’s architectural tours in Bucharest when a team of reporters from the magazine Flacara (
) has accompanied the tour participants guided by the author of Historic Houses of Romania – Case de Epoca blog. The location of the picture is next to a famous inter-war Modernist building in Mantuleasa area, the Soli Gold house, designed by Marcel Iancu (Janko), see his name plate adorning the wall, one of the founders of the Dada movement and main figure of the European constructivist current in art and architecture. Historic Houses of Romania – Case de Epoca, the most comprehensive internet resource on Romania’s period architecture, authored by the undersigned, offers what are probably the most interesting, engaging and referenced architectural tours of Bucharest and other important cities in and around Romania.
